Steven Tyler Goes Country?

Jeff Beck - Loud Hailer
Jeff Beck – Loud Hailer

I have added a couple of new tracks into high rotation this week. The first track is from the new release from Steven Tyler (of Aerosmith). The track is called We’re All Somebody From Somewhere, which incidentally is the name of the album. Recorded in Nashville, with crack session musicians, you can hear a definite country influence on several tracks on the album.

The second track I have added into high rotation is taken from the new Jeff Beck album, which is called Loud Hailer. Listen for the very interesting, funk-infused track called O.I.L. (Can’t Get Enough Of That Sticky). Let me know what you think!

Brand New Heart Album

Brand New Heart Album - Beautiful Broken
Heart – Beautiful Broken

I have just added 4 tracks into high rotation from the brand new Heart album, which is called Beautiful Broken.

The Wilson sisters have dug back into their back catalogue and re-recorded several tracks that they were not originally satisfied with due to production or performance. The results are engaging and energizing. Listen for the title track, which features a duet with James Hetfield (of Metallica). You can see (and hear) the video by clicking here.  A new track called Heaven is an interesting mix of different musical styles. They turn the track  Down on Me (originally from the album Bebe Le Strange) into a heavy, slow-burning waltz with a torch-song vibe. The track I Jump is a Led Zeppelin inspired burn that features a string arrangement from Paul Buckmaster, who is famous for orchestrating early Elton John albums.

The album is receiving raves from fans and critics alike – and I recommend you keep it on your player of choice throughout the summer!

Something New for The Prog Rock Crowd

Anderson Stolt - Invention Of Knowledge
Anderson Stolt – Invention Of Knowledge

I have added 4 new tracks into high rotation on the playlist. This includes a brand new track called Knowledge from a new album from Jon Anderson (vocalist of Yes) and Raine Stolt (of The Flower Kings and Transatlantic). The album is called Invention Of Knowledge. If you liked early Yes – you will love this album. Here is a short teaser currently on YouTube.

I have also added a track from the new Eric Clapton album Crossroads Revisited, which is a 3 disc compilation featuring over 4 hours of live performances garnered over the years from Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. Listen for a rockin’ live version of Crossroads.

I have also added 2 new tracks from the album recently released by Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle. The album is called (logically enough) Colvin & Earle. Listen for the tracks You’re Right (I’m Wrong) and Tobacco Road.
